    Summary

    Series was formerly "Remus Lupin and the darkness", but evolved way beyond that.

    I should probably make clear somewhere that these are standalones in that they share some sort of continuity, but occasionally veer of into different AUs at different points of the timestream. So Not By Force is definitely not where things are meant to go, it's just an exercise in misery ^^

    Summary

    This series started from a simple idea that has become a popular theme since the release of the new Fantastic Beasts film.
    Specifically, what if the Dursleys' abuse (which everyone agrees is canon, at least to some extent) led to Harry becoming an Obscurial. Given that jumping off point, I decided to explore the consequences of this notion. In this case, things kick off well before Harry reaches Hogwarts age with the emergence of the Obscurus in Part 1.

    Part 1: Unexpected Consequences is complete. It covers Harry and Sirius' initial reunion in 1985.

    Part 2: A Tale of Two Letters is complete. It takes place six year later, in the summer of 1991, and covers the Hogwarts invitations and the realizations that come in the aftermath of those letters' delivery.

    Part 3: Irregular Homecomings is complete. It takes place starting in the summer of 1994, and is the events of Goblet of Fire in this universe.

    Part 4: Appendices are reference notes for the series. Each chapter is independent, and chapters are posting periodically.

    Summary

    Regulus Black survives his adventure in the cave and brings the locket to an unlikely ally: his estranged older brother. The ex-Death Eater strikes a bargain with Dumbledore, cooperation in exchange for his family’s safety. Sirius Black is faced with his toughest mission yet: managing Walburga and Orion Black—who, to his surprise and dismay, decide they rather enjoy having both of their sons back, and very quickly scheme to make this temporary family reunion permanent.

    Or: the story of how one night completely changed the course of the war and Sirius's life.

    Summary

    AU:Slytherin!Sirius.
    Sirius has never really felt like a Slytherin. Sure, he wears the colours and he cheers for the Quidditch Team, but it's never felt... right. So when Snape asks him to follow Remus, and he does, he starts to question his green-alignment a little more. It doesn't help that The Marauders have a secret, and he's determined to find it out.
